Magnificence Epitomized

A sandy beach covered with corals, a long stretch of surrounding hills blanketed with lush leafy greens, an aquamarine sea in front, and natural beauty all around. Koh Kradan Island located towards the south of Koh Lanta. Koh Kradan is indeed an epitome of perfect beach vacations with its idyllic environment and emerald-green crystal-clear waters. Whether you are a solo globetrotter, a group of friends in search of some fun, a newly wedded couple on their honeymoon, or a family seeking a sublime getaway; Koh Kradan will not disappoint you with its visually spectacular ambiance and low-tide sandbars.


Most of the island is uninhabited with some eccentric resorts. On an ideal sunny day, the narrow long beach of Koh Kradan provides some awe-inspiring views of nearby islets including Koh Mook, Koh Ngai, and Koh Libong. The Koh Kradan beach covered with white powdery sand provides a perfect spot for snorkeling with its shallow waters. You can witness some tropical fishes plunging among beautiful corals. The Koh Kradan island has a total of four main beaches each of which are embellished with picturesque natural surroundings and vivid aquamarine character.

The only clamor you will find on the Koh Kradan beach will be of the daytrippers that leave the shores in the morning till afternoon. Once they depart, all you will hear are the bustle of the gentle waves, the sunsurrate laughs of kids playing on the beach and the croon of the longtail boats sailing over the peppy waters.


Koh Kradan is a tropical island paradise for the beach lovers. If your idea of beach holidays is about a book and a hammock, you will not find a more relaxing location to make it just perfect. And if you are seeking some fun, leave the shore and swim through the crystalline waters. Towards the south, you will find the campground of the Hat Chao Mai National Park. Towards the north, you will find sea eagles giving a shot to catch some minnows in the crystalline water of low-tide sandbars. Snorkel your way off the shore to witness some magnificent marine creatures. Move towards the west to find the beckoning divine beaches and globule coral gardens of Koh Ruk.

Wanna make your Koh Kradan vacations more enthralling, dive off the shores of Kradan to participate in an underwater wedding ceremony held every year around the Valentine’s Day. Witness the ethereal romantic moment as the groom kisses the bride deep under the water wearing an oxygen mask.
